ECA Presents: THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS: Target Earth A Live-Action Graphic Novel

Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA) presents THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS: Target Earth: A Live-Action Graphic Novel on Friday, April 29, 2016 at 7:30pm.

When THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS premiered, more than 2,100 people showed up. Shortly thereafter, it was featured on NPR and Conan O’Brien. Now in its third touring season, the production has hit more than 80 venues around the US, UK and Canada, including a run at the New Victory Theater on Broadway. This one-of-a-kind all-ages show is not to be missed.

The premise is simple: a period adventure story (with no small share of laughs) featuring Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan, her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez, and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott as they face the most serious threat Earth has ever known: an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon.

Three actors voice the dozens of characters, a Foley artist creates all the sound effects, and a pianist plays a cinematic score, while more than 1,250 individual full-color hi-res comic book panels tell a hilarious sci-fi adventure story visually from an enormous movie screen. And it's all done live in front of your eyes.

“In 20 years of directing and producing plays, I’ve never seen an audience respond so positively,” says project creator Jason Neulander.

The New York Post called THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS’s limited run on Broadway "Great fun! [A] happily retro multimedia extravaganza," Examiner.com describes it as "pure theater magic," and The Austinist recommends it as "totally nuts and a ton of fun… Do not miss it." But don't just leave it to the experts. See it for yourself.

If you've got an inner 12-year-old (or an actual one living in your home), THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS is one show you don't want to miss.

Tickets are $24, $29, $34. Tickets can be purchased online at www.ec4arts.org, through the ECA Box Office located at 410 Fourth Avenue North, or by calling 425.275.9595.
